I-08T0FFI; 



Usually the preface of a book is an unnecessary prefix, 
but this preface is of importance to all who intend to col- 
lect coins, currency, etc., for numismatic purposes to sell 
to dealers in such articles. 

The prices quoted beside the dates and descriptions in 
this book are the current market numismatic values at the 
date of publishing this book. The publisher of this book, 
W. E. Skinner, Coin Broker, 325 Washington Street, will 
usually buy specimens listed herein, and will pay the 
prices named if he needs the specimens. Almost any 
other dealer will buy at these rates. It must be remem- 
bered that prices are constantly fluctuating. In order to 
learn the very latest quotations, it is advisable to send ten 
cents at least once a year to W. E. Skinner for his Pre- 
mium Coin Manual, which is strictly reliable. This 
Manual is issued once a year, and is the most reliable 
publication of its kind. 

In sending consignments to a dealer, each piece should 
be in a separate envelope, labelled, and the lot sent by ex- 
press or registered mail, with the sender's name and address 
both inside and on wrapper of package or box. 

Dealers are not responsible for consignments if not 
sent in a safe manner, and if address of sender is not on 
outside. Moreover, a list of contents should be enclosed 
and a letter of advice sent by mail at same time in a separ- 
ate evelope. 

W. E. Skinner settles for coins monthly by cheque, 
draft, money order, stamps or cash in registered letter. 
Business may be transacted at his office either personally 



S 
or by mail or express. Distance makes no difference, as 
his patrons are to be met with in every part of the world. 
He has clerks competent to conduct correspondence in all 
ordinary foreign languages. 

It is not the date of a coin upon which its value de- 
pends so much as its condition. The aim of the numis- 
matist is to get specimens in uncirculated condition when- 
ever possible. 

List of other numismatic publications, etc., for sale by 
W. E. Skinner, Boston: Latest Coin Manual, 10 cents ; 
coin lists, for distribution, containing lists of numerous 
coins, with prices which you can profitably pay (consid- 
erably lower than those quoted in this Gilt Edge Coin Book 
or manual), 5 cents per dozen, or 25 cents per hundred; 
Small Foreign Coin Guide, 10 cents ; Alexander's Coin 
Book, 10 cents ; Morey's Coin Buying and Selling List, 
10 cents; Coin Collector's Herald, 10 cents. 

In order to become expert at determining the conditions 
of coins, it will be advisable to get a sample set, which 
contains specimens of uncirculated and good coins, also 
accurate descriptions of proofs and other directions. With 
the samples and directions much time and expense may 
be saved. A Sample Coin Set may be bought of W. E. 
Skinner, Boston. Price per set, 25 cents, postpaid. 

Gilt Edge Coin Book. This book can be readily sold 
by agents. The regular price is two dollars, but some 
agents sell at a dollar a copy, just half price, and yet earn 
a good profit. Our price to agents and dealers, at whole- 
sale, is $7.20 per dozen, or in large lots at $50 per 100. 
No less than 50 sold at the hundred rate. Address all 
orders to W. E. Skinner, Boston. 

Do not write to dealers asking questions about numis- 
matic specimens unless you are sure that the subject is 
not fully answered in this book. If you find it necessary 
to write, however, be sure to enclose two 2-cent stamps 
for reply. 




RARE COINS. 



The prices paid for rare coins are regulated by their state 
of preservation and the number of a certain issue in ex- 
istence ; neither the metal out of which the coin is made, 
nor the age, has anything to do with the prices paid ; thus 
a copper coin might be worth a hundred times more than a 
gold coin of the same date. A coin issued only a few years 
ago is often worth more than one 2000 years old. Uncir- 
culated coins of certain dates are worth from $5 to $100, 
while others of exactly the same kind, but much worn, 
would not be worth more than their face value. 

Rare coins are divided in classes according to their state 
of preservation, the highest possible state a coin can be in 
is proof, then come uncirculated, fine, good, fair and poor. 

PROOF COINS. 

These coins are especially struck for coin collectors. 
The planchet and dies are polished before the coin is 
struck, which gives them a burnished or mirror-like, re- 
flective surface. The Mint makes a small charge for each 
coin so struck, and they can only be had during the year 
of the issue. 

UNCIRCULATED COINS 

are coins as they came from the Mint. They must have 
the same luster as when dropped from the coining press. 
A coin that has been tarnished and polished up again can 
not be classed as uncirculated, although it does not show 
the slightest wear. 



FINE COINS 

are those that have lost their original luster, but do not 
show the least wear. They might be tarnished or black- 
ened, but no scratches or nicks are permissible on a fine 
coin. 

GOOD COINS 

must show every feature, especially the date, very plain, 
not scratched, hammered, plugged or otherwise mutilated. 

FAIR COINS 

are coins on which the lettering, design and date are 
clearly readable. 

POOR COINS 

are those on which the design, lettering and date are al- 
most unintelligible. 

MUTILATED COINS 

are coins with holes, cuts, scratches, hammered or other- 
wise damaged, and, unless they are coins of a very rare 
issue, are only worth their intrinsic value. A rare coin 
with a hole is worth about one-half of what it would be 
without it. 



FOREIGN COINS. 



There are very few of the modern foreign coins that 
command a premium, but any coin issued before 1600 will 
be bought at a premium. To give a list of all the foreign 
coins would require a book of several thousand pages, and 
would be of little value to American collectors.

TO PARTIES FORMING COLLECTIONS OF COINS. 

The large shipments of coins I am constantly receiv- 
ing enables me to fill orders promptly. I have at all times 
a large stock of the early Colonial copper and silver coins, 
United States gold, silver and copper coins, ancient Greek, 
Roman and Mediaeval coins, Colonial and Confederate 
bills, fractional currency and numismatic books. 



NEVER CLEAN A COIN IF YOU WANT TO 
SELL IT TO ME. 



COUNTERFEIT RARE COINS. 



False coins may be divided into the following classes : 

I. RE-STRIKES 

are coins made with the original dies, but at a later period. 
Among the American coins we find re-strikes of the early 
Colonials, the dollars of 1S04, and the half cents of 1831, 
1S36, 1840 to 1S49. They do not command the same price 
as those struck at the time of the date. At present the 
dies are destroyed after each year, also all the old dies were 
destroyed some twenty years ago, and collectors having 
rare dates can feel safe that there will be no more re-strikes. 

II. FORGERIES STRUCK FROM FALSE 
DIES. 

Those are found mostly among the New England shill- 
ings, New England sixpence. New England threepence, Pin* 



and Oak Tree Massachusetts coins, Good Samaritan shill- 
ing, Sommers Island coins, Carolina Elephant coins, and 
cent of 1804. No expert in coins is apt to be deceived by 
them, as their appearance is entirely different from the gen- 
uine. They do not have the ancient characteristic peculi- 
arities ; the lettering and design is a good deal sharper than 
on the genuine and the weight is also mostly incorrect. 

III. CASTS MADE FROM ORIGINALS. 

A cast coin j when in gold or silver, may always be de- 
tected by its light weight, unless this has been compen- 
sated for by making the cast thicker than the original. 
The lettering and the types on cast coins are also less 
sharply defined than on struck coins, and the surface has 
either a soft and soapy appearance, or else is covered with 
minute sand holes — an infallible indication of rough cast- 
ing. 

IV. ELECTROTYPES, 

These are of necessity of wrong weight. They may 
also be known by the edges, where the mark of joining 
of the two sides, separately made and then stuck together,. 
is never concealed, unless, which is seldom the case, the 
electrotype is intended to deceive. The genuine patina on 
bronze coins is imitated by paint, which can be removed 
by spirits of wine. Electrotypes may generally be split in 
two with a strong knife. 

V. ALTERED DATES. 

Original coins which have been tooled or altered may 
be claimed as forgeries. Among the American coins it is 
especially the dollars of 1801 which are altered by remov- 
ing the 1 and inserting in its place a 4, and so producing 
an 1804 dollar. Alterations also occur on the 1793, 1799, 
1S04 cents, quarter dollars of 1S23, 1827 and 1S53. These 
alterations can generally each be detected with a strong 
magnifying glass, as it hardly ever can be done without 
leaving some scratches or marks, and anyone buying a 
rare coin will do well to examine particularly the date. 



7 

NO RESPONSIBLE COIN DEALER 

will knowingly sell a false coin as genuine, but it nas 
occurred that coins pronounced genuine by the most expe- 
rienced turned out to be false, and if ever any case like this 
should occur in my business, I shall always be ready to 
take back the coin and refund the money paid for it. 



HOW TO SEND COINS. 



In order not to go to useless expense, always send a 
list, and if convenient a rubbing of what you have before 
sending the coins, and if there is anything among them 
that I want, I will inform you by return mail. 

SMALL LOTS OF COINS 

up to one pound in weight are best sent by mail, at one 
cent per ounce, and if the coins are valuable it is best to 
have the package registered. 

Put up-all packages in strong manilla envelopes or in 
wood or tin boxes. Never send coins in the common 
white envelopes, as they are not strong enough to hold the 
coins. I am receiving constantly mail packages broken 
and some of the coins lost, and I will not be responsible 
for any loss occurring that way. 

LARGE PACKAGES MIGHT BE SENT BY EX- 
PRESS PREPAID. 

I positively do not accept packages on which the charges 
are not paid by the sender, as it often occurs that a person 
sends a lot of foreign copper coins which are not worth 
the express charges. Neither do I accept any packages 
sent C. O. D. 



s 



All coins are f>aid for the same day as received and 
coins once paid for can not be reclaimed. 

Anyone that is not satisfied with these terms I do not 
solicit their business. 

Always send your full name and address with each lot 
of coins you send and state the lowest price you will ac- 
cept for them. 

COMMON COINS, 

that is, coins which do not command a premium, are re- 
turned at the expense of the sender, deducting enough 
from the amount sent to pay return postage, or I will send 
check for face value.

THE AMERICAN COIN SCALE. 

Coins are generally measured by the above scale ; thus 
a half dollar of the present issue would be called size 20, a 
quarter, size 15. 

TERMS USED TO DEFINE THE VARIOUS 

PARTS OF A COIN. 

The front or face of a coin is called the obverse. O. 
Obv. 

The back is called the reverse. R. Rev. 

The principal device or object represented on a coin is 
called the type. 

The area or space between the type and the circumfer- 
ence is called the field. 

The lower portion of the area of a coin beneath the 
type and separated from the rest of the field by a horizon- 



9 



tal line is called the exergue. Ex. This particular place 
on coins, with or without the separating line, is commonlv 
referred to as the Ex. 

Small objects represented either in the field or the ex- 
ergue as adjuncts to the main type are called symbols. 

Portions of a coin which are sunk below the level of 
the surface are said to be inctcse. 

THE PRICES QUOTED 

in this book include in every instance the face value of the 
coin, and the publisher reserves the right to change the 
prices paid at any time without further notice. 




The First Metallic Coins 

made in America were the New England shilling, sixpence 
and threepence. They consist of planchets of silver hav- 
ing N. E. stamped on one side and XII., VI., or III. on the 
other. They were authorized by the General Court of 
Massachusetts, at Boston, May 27, 1652 On June 20, 
1652, an order was issued for the construction of a house 
for the " Mint, " which eventually Mas built just south of 
the entrance to the present Pembroke Square, on land be- 
longing to John Hull. The building, when completed, 
measured sixteen feet square and ten feet high. On June 
11, John Hull and Robert Sandersons were sworn in as 
officers of the Mint, and they were to receive one shilling 
and sixpence for every twenty shillings coined. The shil- 



10 



lings were to weigh seventy-two grains, fineness nine hun- 
dred and twenty-five, and the sixpence and threepence in 
proportion. There is no date on these coins, but they 
were coined the same year as authorized, and only a lim- 
ited number were issued of the above type, and the dies 
changed the same year to the Willow, Oak and Pine Tree 
coins, which all bear the date of 1652 or 1662, but had 
been coined for nearly thirty years.

There are numerous counterfeits of these coins, but 
they can easily be distinguished by their symmetrical ap- 
pearance The originals are clipped into an irregular, 
round shape and the N. E. and numerals are never oppo- 
site each other, but at the side, or one on top and the other 
at the bottom.

Authorized by act of Congress, March 3, 1S49. Weight 516

of the regular issue, and consequently they do not command a pre-

Note : There are numerous counterfeits bearing the date of 1804. 
They are generally made out ot the 1S01, which bears a close resem- 
blance to the 1S04, by cutting out the 1 in the date and inserting a 4 in 
its place. Any scratches or depressions about the date are si'e indi^ 
cations that the coin is false. There are also re-strikes, made with the 
original dies but at a later date, and as they did not have the collar the 
lettering around the edge is irregular, as it was put on by hand after- 
wards.

The new series are called the Bland Dollar, and Miss Annie L. 
Williams, a Philadelphia school-teacher, represents the French profile 
of Liberty. There is an interesting- story connected with the way in 
which Miss Williams' profile came to be used on the Bland Dollar. 
In the winter of 1877-78 G. T. Morgan, the designer, was working on 
sketches for the imprint of the then new silver dollar. Previous to 
this there had been no dollars coined for five years. Prof. Thomas 
gakins, then of the Academy of the Fine Arts, advised him to use a 



79 



iife study, and introduced him to Miss Annie L. Williams, a school- 
teacher, living- at Thirteenth and Spring Garden streets. Miss Wil- 
liams, who possessed strikingly classical features, consented to sit 
for the drawing, and her profile was used to complete the design.

1853, without arrow-heads at date. 

^ no rays $8 00 $3 00 $1 00 

Note : There are numerous counterfeit coins of this date. Some 
are made out of the 1853 with arrows and with rays, simply by punch- 
ing the objectionable arrow heads and ravs out of sight. Others are 
made out of the 1858 quarter, by changing the 8 into a 3. All these 
frauds can easily be detected by weighing them. The genuine 185? 
quarters without arrows weigh 103.125 grains ; those with arrows onlj 
96 grains. The same frauds are also practiced with the 1853 hal' 
dollars.

This cut illustrates admirably the so-called overstrikes, which 
means that the dies used for the issues of 1810 were also used for the 
1811, by simply changing the last figure. Some of these overstrikes 
are very rare and command higher prices than those with perfect 
dates. For instance, the half dollars of 1805 struck from the altered 
die of 1S04 are very rare, also the cents of 1799 struck from the altered 
die of 1789, and so with a great many other overstrikes.

These tokens, intended for circulation in the south, were struck a 
few months prior to the civil war as a speculative venture. In at- 
tempting to move them south shortly after the breaking out of the war, 
they were confiscated by the Federal government.

Counterfeit Silver Certificates. 

Examine all Silver Certificates with great care. 
i. Of the denomination of $1.0- Check-letter D, payable 
at Washington, D. C. No. 1650916, Series of i83o. Signed 
G. W. Schofteld, Register, Jas. Gilfillan, Treasurer. The 
slightest application of moisture to the Treasury number 
printed in blue disturbs the color. 

2. Of the denomination <?/$10. Check-letter D, Series of 
18S0, No. B, 109016. Signed as the above, photographic note 
one-eighth of an inch shorter and narrower than the genuine 
note. The seal and X's, in the genuine of pink color, have 
been photographed black in the counterfeit, like the balance 
of the note. 

3. Of the deno?nination of |20. It is pen-work, poorly 
executed, and easily detected. The paper is thinner than the 
genuine, and the work appears darker. The Treasury number 
can be rubbed off the counterfeit with a damp finger or 
sponge. The diamond figures between the letters " Certifi- 
cate " on the back differ in shape and size. The words " En- 
graved and Printed at the Bureau Engraving and Printing " 
are wanting on the counterfeit. They may be added, however, 
on the next issue. 

4. Of the denomination of $20. No. 6751 14. This pho 
tographic counterfeit is much paler than the genuine. 

5. Of the denomination <?/$20. Series of 1880, B1467X 
and B1487415X. Jas. Gilfillan, Treas. The paper is thick, 
greasy and stiff. The note is one-eighth inch shorter than the 
genuine. No distributed fibre or parallel silk threads in the 
paper as in the genuine. In Gilfillan only the first " i " is 
dotted. On back of note " Taxes " is spelled " Tares," and 
the word " Engraved " is spelled " Engravod." Color of the 
seal is brick red ; should be verging on brown.

CONFEDERATE NOTES. 



Of all classes of Paper Money which can be procured at 
moderate expense, these are the most interesting, both from 
the multiplicity of designs, and from their being the principal 
relics of the greatest of civi 1 wars. The beautifully engraved 
notes issued at Montgomery, at the beginning of the war, 
(May, 1861), with the imprint of the National Bank Note Co. 
of New York, are especially prized.

RARE FOREIGN COINS. 



To give a complete list of all foreign coins would require a 
book of several thousand pages, which would be of little value 
to American collectors, as there is little demand here for such 
coins. The prices here given are for fine specimens. 

Great Britain. 

The early coins in use in this country were principally Ro- 
man ; from about the year 400 to 600 a.d., a series of small 
coins like pennies were made, called stycae (of mixed metal) 
and sceattae (of silver). These were succeeded, about the 
year 600, by silver pennies of Ethelbert, Cuthred, Baldred, 
Eadwald, Offa, Coenwlf, Berthulf, Burgred, Ciowlf, Beonna, 
Eadmund, and other Saxon kings, followed by the sole mon- 
archs of England, commencing with Egbert in 800, and con- 
tinuing until the Norman conquest by William the Conqueror 
in 1066. From this time the coinage of silver pennies contin- 
ued until the reign of Edward III., in 1327, when the coinage 
of gold, and of the larger silver pieces, commenced. Buying 
prices are 25 to 50 per cent, lower than selling prices.

During the reign of Henry VIII., or " Bluebeard," the coin- 
age was greatly alloyed, both of gold and silver, so that on the 
silver coins with the full face, the copper showing through, he 
was familiarly called " Old Copper Nose."

Elizabeth. 
During the reign of Elizabeth the coinage from the % 
penny to the shilling, which in previous reigns, especially that 
of Henry VIII., had been very much debased, was restored to 
good silver, and the introduction of the mill and the screw in 
their manufacture, instead of the old process of hammer and 
punch, gave the coins a more even appearance, and ultimately 
did away with the necessity of mint-marks, with which to 
prove the quality of the coins from the different mints.

Charles I. 
During the civil wars of this unhappy monarch, the mint 
was at one time removed to Oxford, where the college plate 
was turned into money, some of the larger pieces having a 
view of the city in the background with " Defender of the 
Protestant Religion," etc., on the reverse, and as the king's 
resources became straitened, rude pieces were coined at Pon- 
trefact, Newark and other towns. They were of different 
shapes, one of the crowns having simply a V on one side and 
C R crowned on the other.

Maunday Money. 

Many of the low value coins of the later sovereigns were 
struck only in sets of one penny, two pence, three pence and 
four pence, to keep up the custom of distributing small coins 
among the p®or on Holy or Maunday Thursday of each year, 
when a bag of coin was handed to each person, containing a 
coin for each year of the king' s age. 

Most collectors prefer to purchase these in sets.

France. 

The earliest coins of France were made in the time of the 
Emperor Clovis, followed by rude coins of Pepin and Charle- 
magne, the gold coinage of Philip of Valois, the base silver of 
St. Louis, the gold crowns of Chas. VII., and the silver gros 
or groats of Louis XII. and Henry II,, succeeded by the regu- 
lar coinage of crowns and half-crowns in the reign of Louis 
XII.

During the reign of Philip II., king of Spain, coins were

Old German Crowns. 

In making a collection of foreign silver coins many collect- 
ors prefer to make as complete a series as possible of dollar 



188 

or crown size. Of these one of the most interesting are the 
old medal) ic crowns of the cities and princes of Germany and 
Holland from the 15th to the 17th century. We always have 
a large variety of these in stock, and describe some of the 
most interesting, though a complete collection would number 
several hundred. There were also a few half crowns issued,

A Few Explanations 

ABOUT GREEK AND ROMAN COINS. 

No doubt it seems strange to the superficial observer 
that coins issued 1500 to 2500 years ago should not bring 
as much as some coined a few years ago, but this is a fact, 
and genuine Greek and Roman copper coins the size of a 
dime do seldom bring over 25 cents apiece ; those of the 
size of a quarter to half dollar, 50 to 75 cents; and those of 
the size of a silver dollar, $1.00 to $5.00. Of course these 
prices apply to common varieties. Rare issues bring some 
very high prices, There are such large quantities of these 
old coins constantly unearthed, that the supply far exceeds 
the demand. These coins are old but not rare. Now, any- 
one not familiar with these old coins will say: " How do 
you know that they are so old; there is no date on them ?' 
Coins never were dated as they are now until about 1450 
a.d. The only way to determine the age of Greek and 
Roman coins is to look up ancient history. Most of 
the ancient coins, as far back as 300 years before Christ, 
have on the obverse, like those of the present day, the 
bust of some prince, king, tyrant or emperor; and on the 
reverse, the title or name. Now, if one is familiar with the 
Greek or Latin language, it is very easy to find out under 
whose reign the coin was issued, and by consulting the 
chronology one can ascertain the age of a coin within a 
very narrow limit. On the following plates are given 
some illustrations of these early coins : Those on the first 
plate were coined 700 to 600 B.C., those on the second 300 
to 200 b.c, those on the third from 60 to 100 a.d., and 
those on the fourth plate from 1000 to 1670 a.d. 

To a student of ancient history nothing can be more 
interesting than these coins, as some are relics and wit- 
nesses of the former existence of cities and nations, which 
if it were not for these coins we never should have known 
anything of their existence.
